Here you are, sweet internet users. Another list of things from the year that was. Creating an arbitrary list of items pertaining to one general (or even hyper specific) topic has become the preferred way for websites to generate clicks. People click on lists of anything; it’s as certain as a late-game interception from Tony Romo. In so many ways, it is incredibly frustrating. Seeing how many users are sucked into reading a list like “21 Cats Celebrating Boxing Day” makes us weep for our children. (Screw you, Buzzfeed.) Seeing how websites are increasingly catering to this least-common-denominator type of list-ing and devoting resources to promoting this type of work is equally sad.
And while we at the Double A Podcast are firmly against list-icles, we are not above talking about things we like. If they happen to resemble something of a list, well then so be it.
In episode 74, Adam and Anthony discuss their favorite things from 2013, including an appreciation for Kanye, the new season of SNL, Kaiju, the Lannisters, Walter White and even some plays. The fellas also include a few things they are not pleased about at the end, namely the profound idiocy of Under the Dome, the weirdness of Manti Te’o and not giving a shit about whatever the fox does or does not say. (Also, ignore the fact we refer to it as Episode 75 at the beginning. We are dumb.)
Thank you all for listening throughout our maiden year. We hope you’ve enjoyed and continue to listen.
